'The 'Oh Duh!' Chord Progression'

I think we have laid the foundation for understanding chord progressions now. We have covered chords from basic triads to extended, altered, suspended, and slash chords. We have learned how the circle of keys works in both major and minor keys. And we have learned how to tell what key a song is in when there are flats in the key signature, when there are sharps in the key signature, and when there is neither.
So let's begin learning some of the most used chord progressions -- the progressions that happen over and over and over again in song after song after song.
The first progression we will consider I have labeled the 'Oh Duh!' chord progression. When my daughter, Kendra, was in junior high school, she and her friends used to use that term a lot. Whenever I said something overly obvious, she would say 'Oh Duh!' -- meaning, of course, that whatever I said was so painfully obvious that it really didn't need to be said at all.
